Manaslu & Tsum Valley followed by Pisang Peak/Tillicho Lake

28 days trek in remote areas – first exploring Tsum Valley and Manaslu region, then taking on a Pisang Peak or Tillicho Lake.
Departing from Kathmandu is on Oct 25th, actual trek will start from Arughat on Oct 26th. Plan is to trek the Tsum Valley with Ganesh Himal BC in 9 days, then continue on the Manaslu Circuit with sidetrip to Manaslu BC in next 7 days, and at the end depending on situation either attempt to climb Pisang Peak or traverse through Tillicho Lake to Jomsom.
If you like our plans and would to join our small group of independent trekkers, do not hesite to leave a message.

  1. Hi there,
    Your trek sounds interesting. I am arriving in Kathmandu on the 25/10, planning a Manaslu/Tsum trip asap after that. Given the itinerary, this is obviously a camping trek with a touch of difference. Can you tell me more about it?

    • Hi Gilles,
      the first part of the trip (Manaslu and Tsum) is a teahouse trek, but based on our own itinerary. The second part (Pisang Peak or Tillicho) is obviously camping. Since Marian will have already waitied few days in KTM for me, I do not want to delay any more and we will try to leave KTM as planned on Oct25, but in case we get delayed and you are still interested in joinig us, we could meet in person and see if we can work something out.
      In any case, enjoy your trip 😉

  2. Hey guys,

    Yes, your trek sounds awesome, as they say in amerika.

    I’m planning on doing the Tsum valley trek with my gf leaving Arughat on oct 25/26th.
    The guide prices are out of this world!! Lets share?

    We have to be in Kathmandu on the 9th of November, which gives us only 15 days.

    Is this a possibility? One thing that comes to mind is, can we return separately and how does that work out with our shared guide?

    Cheers and best wishes.

    • Hi Dave,
      it would not have been a problem to share only appropriate portion of the cost for our guide, but since we will do the Tsum Valley as a part of our trip, there is no way you would be able to return in time to KTM even ifyou separated right after we join the Annapurna trek in Dharapani.
